Essie 006

I want to start reviewing entire nail polish collections as the come out! So today I am reviewing the Essie fall collection.

Dragonfly Really gorgeous deep green duochrome with glass flecks. You can see the duochrome is blue/teal (you can best see that on the edges of the bottle in this picture). Pictured is 2 easy coats.

Nanacoco City of Emeralds is a cool toned lime green foil. I absolutely love this color! Shown above is two easy coats. I think this was my favorite of the bunch, but it was the hardest to photograph.

Challenge Bugs 1

I painted my base with 17 Peacock and added a dragonfly with acrylic paints. To make it a bit prettier I put some rhine-stones on the body and painted the wings with opalescent glitter.

Under the sea

Sea Creature is a mix of dark emerald micro glitter and medium blue holo hex glitters with a sprinkling of small violet glitter. I’ve seen a few random pieces of medium silver holo hexes as well in there, but they’re kinda rare. This is all in a clear base, but it covers almost completely in two coats on its own, or in one coat over a base color (shown here over Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal).

It is a little deeper and little dustier than Mermaids Tears – which makes it more finger-wearable for me. I know I should probably get rid of one of these, but I really can’t bear that right now! I just love this colour – it’s very soothing. And I need some of that in my life.

Brazilian Rainbows!

OPI Brazil Textures Rainbow Nail Art Nailart009 

OK, you all know I love texture polishes so these shades included in the OPI Brazil collection were a treat. The only problem? They are minis :( I wanted to show off each shade while creating a fun nail design…take a look!

Mutagen – green multi chrome metallic. The base colour is rich green that changes into dark green, gold, brown-green, blue and purple. When I put my nail into a bowl of water, the colours were changing into blue, orange and pink. I’ve applied one coat of Mutagen over black but two coats by themselves are opaque. The colour is slightly streaky an dries fast.

Spring green

Clover 4

Red Carpet Lacquer Clover is a yellow, green and orange multi-shaped glitter. Seems simple enough but what these photos do not show is the glow this polish produces. It’s like foil – it’s awesome! I could have gotten complete coverage with two (ish) coats but I wore one coat over China Glaze Starboard.

Irish Disco Nails

Irish Disco Nails

I would never have the patience for this!

Welp, finally done did it.  Full on rhinestones, no mucking about.  Maya sent in a request a few weeks ago for a tutorial on how to do the full-cover bling nails, so I went for it with the first round of colors from a new wheel (for the record, it took about 2/3 of one of those wheel pockets to cover); turns out the colors were very Irish!  You’ll also note that one of the yellows snuck into the bed of gold stones, so that’s a fun little accident that hopefully only I notice in real life. These are actually pretty easy, aside from being time consuming.  I used clear polish for this, but you can use any color that will work for you; if you’re not packing them really tightly together just pull something that’s a little matchy (or not!) with your stone color.
